Share a Document for EditingNote:
By default, LiveText will search only users within your domain. A domain is often, but not always, synonymous with a school. To search for LiveText users in other domains, select the radio button next to All Users located to the right of the search area.
Once the document has been shared with another LiveText user as an editor, the user can access the document from his/her Inbox.
- From within the document, click the Share button. The Share button is located above the page title on the center left side.
- Enter the LiveText username, group, visitor's pass, or the first and last name in the Search for users text box.
To search users in just your domain, click the radio button for My
Institutions. To search all of the users in LiveText, click
the radio button for All Users.
- Click the Search button next to the box for the person's name.
- The search results will be displayed. If too many are displayed or your specific search is not displayed, you may need to revise your search criteria or the individual may not have a LiveText account.
- Assign a view or edit privilege to each user by clicking the appropriate
radio button beside the user's name.
- Click the Submit button. The document is now shared with viewing or editing privileges with your selection(s).
Advanced Sharing Options
While sharing a document for viewing or editing, there is a link within the share window for Advanced sharing options. This link enables users to view the list of the document viewers, editors, and visitors. Advanced options also include the ability to search for LiveText users, share and remove users from shared access.
There is also an Advanced Options link located in the top right corner of the advanced sharing options area. In this area, the document's shared access may be set to private, shared or public.
Private: Documents may be set for only the creator to see or modify.
Shared: Documents may be set for viewers to see and editors to modify.
Public: Documents may be set for anyone to see, given that they have been provided a link or the URL (web address) of the document. Only editors can modify.
